Now just waiting

The domain transfer is still going on.. everything else is there. Today was my first day where I have been incredible bored, because I can't do anything until the domain starts working. Had I known about the huge delay with domain transfers then I had never initiated one, it has taken me +2 months and it still doesn't work! I am so frustrated. Why oh why!!?!

Being dependent on something unknown that you have no clue how long time it take.. is a very very bad thing that I try to avoid by addressing the big time consuming tasks first. However I was under the impression that this task would max take 48 hours for the DNS to propagate the changes. However just not in my case and now I stuck!

The web hosting company that I switched to has really nice reviews and supports all the features that I need. Now I feel bad about picking them. Domain transfers must be a special case. The web hosting company where I switched from couldn't figure it out neither. So go looking for a third web hosting company probably won't make the situation any better.

Argh, so annoying!

  1. dude, do you OWN your domain? I mean, well, domain transfers from one registrar to another are a pain in the butt, but they don't take +2 months. Unless the registrar sucks. (Enom, Netsol... and well some others.)

    If you OWN the domain, then this should be relatively simple...

    I should look (:

    OK you do own it. This is good. It's with Enom, this is bad, they suck, and I no longer have any friends working there (I did. They left. disgusted.) However as LONG as you don't transfer FROM enom, you won't have a problem.

    I think, in short, your problem was this: ENOM SUCKS. (:

    Yes, I used to have domains at Enom and when I tried to transfer them, MASS DIFFICULTY. I almost drove over to their building to beat some sense into someone, but I didn't, and as a result, I am not in jail (:


  2. Hi Truck.. Now it works. Will never do that again.

    I think the 60 day delay is because of ICANN to avoid scammers from abusing the DNS system. None of the web hosting companies knew about this.
